She's since added to her ever growing collection, snapping them up wherever she goes, giving her original gonk "Norm" some festive friends.

Taking Stacey's lead, other Christmas fanatics are racing to shops includingAldi and The Range to get their instant gonk fix thanks to the bargain stores'incredibly cheap deals.
